Meaning in Life and the Knowledge of Death

The Royal Institute of Philosophy Annual Conference 2021

University of Liverpool, 13-15 July 2021

This conference will explore the relation between our mortality (and the knowledge thereof) and our experience of meaningfulness (and meaninglessness), with particular focus on the question whether death undercuts meaning in life, as some life extensionists proclaim, or whether, on the contrary, meaning depends on our mortality.
